Sparkleberry Boat Landing
| Located off Camp MacBoykin Road. Here you can access Sparkleberry Swamp, the swampy northwest region of Lake Marion.
If you are a visitor of paddling.net, you'll see the name Sparkleberry Swamp come up often where it is described as "a true natural treasure".
Note that there are gators and snakes in the swamp but it is reported that they don't cause any problems. Also, being a swamp, it is fairly easy to get lost so a GPS or compass is highly recommended.
Below are some useful links from the local paddling club, the Palmetto Paddlers:
